Ocasio-Cortez Rips NRA After New Zealand Shootings

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Friday blasted the National Rifle Association after 49 people were killed in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

“At 1st I thought of saying, “Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore. But I couldn’t say ‘imagine,’ Because of Charleston. Pittsburgh. Sutherland Springs. What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted early Friday morning.

She wrote in a follow-up tweet: “(‘Thoughts and prayers’ is reference to the NRA’s phrase used to deflect conversation away from policy change during tragedies. Not directed to [New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda] Ardern, who I greatly admire.)”

“This is a time of great vulnerability for our communities,” the congresswoman said in another tweet. “We must come together, fight for each other, & stand up for neighbors. Isolation, dehumanizing stereotypes, hysterical conspiracy theories, & hatred ultimately lead to the anarchy of violence. We cannot stand for it.”

  2. Anyone … no exceptions … who thinks that the NRA … or any of its members … have anything what-so-ever to do with ANY of these democrat-inspired school shootings, church shootings or any kind of mass shootings … is a total and complete, bed-wetting, bleary-eyed, slobbering, dum-bass liberal, morally bankrupt, democrat pervert! ALL those who set up any public place as a so-called, “safe zone” or “gun-free zone” is corporateley and individually responsible for creating … literally inviting their precious, mentally deranged cowardly criminals to just breeze in and kill to their hearts content. It is ONLY the ignorant and stupid people who want to disarm American Citizens who are directly responsible for ALL of these mass shootings AND for the death of every victim of their illegal alien criminals. All that innocent blood … on the hands of every democrat!
